This book contains only the original volume of information which only has patents to 1666, NOT 1800, as is in the title.
Secondly, in the description, the listing of the additional volumes without publication dates is misleading, as well. This book was published in 1934 when Nugent first received support for publishing the series, which was withdrawn by the donor just as the second volume was going to press.
An curatorial clarification should be inserted by the staff to correct this problem.
My two star review is for the curatorial information, NOT for the value of Nugent's work, which will always be a five star piece of scholarship. But the search of online text is based upon both the curatorial and the content.
